We often criticise the way in which mobile devices have taken over our world.. It’s good to remind ourselves that these devices have also OPENED up a whole new world of communication for many of us... pic.twitter.com/kricI2dNeG— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) December 27, 2019

Good & bad use of any tool depends on the the user and not the technology itself. We criticise because we don’t like to blame ourselves or accept that we have lost control on our own senses. Efforts has to be taken to learn to control senses and not growth of technology.#yoga— Anu Kushwaha (@KushwahaAnu) December 27, 2019

I have observed this many times in many places. this is best innovative use for deaf and dumb people. I feel happy that video calling helps them to connect as well as in one case I saw someone using to ask directions or help for work over a video call. Beautiful tech use.— Sidharth Naik (@sidharth_naik) December 27, 2019
Also a carpenter came to my house for kitchen measurement. He measured everything and then called his master on video to discuss few thing and show the kitchen. He later told me it’s not just about measuring but we would also like to recommend you many things to suit your kitchen— Prasad Deshpande (@MePrasad89) December 27, 2019
